BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Summit High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team got 40 points combined from junior captains Malcolm Sidebottom, Dom Yorio and sophomore Joe Lusardi, and rode a solid second-half performance to roll past Governor Livingston, 61-41.

The win was the Maroon and White's sixth in a row, and ups their season record to an impressive 7-1.

Sidebottom (14), Yorio (13) and Lusardi (13) were followed by sophomore Eric Baier's eight point as the Hilltoppers again  used the three-ball to punish their opponent, knocking down 8 treys to the Highlanders' four.

Girls Drop Decision to Oak Knoll

SUMMIT, NJ - In a not so warm and fuzzy 'flipabout' from their previous tilt -- a win over Rahway in which they blanked their opponent 13-zip in the first quarter -- the Summit High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team found itself on the wrong end of an opening-quarter, bakers dozen deficit against Oak Knoll at the Main Gym.

The Hilltoppers trailed 14-1 after one, a points gulf Summit was not able to overcome over the final 24 minutes of basketball, and the Royals eased to a 44-28 victory. Oak Knoll, which was led by the one-two punch of Greta Criqui and Paige Morton -- each of whom notched 14 points -- was up big, at 36-14, after three quarters, making Summit's 14-8 fourth quarter a minor 'win' from an optics perspective only.

A bright spot for Summit, now 4-4 on the season, was the play of Sarah Maldonado, who came off the bench to lead all Hilltopper scorers with eight points. The freshman also led the team in rebounds with six.

Summit makes the short trip to New Providence on January 13 to take on the Pioneers. Tip-off is scheduled for 12 p.m.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
